First, clean the lampshade. This is necessary because it has to be dry, clean and free from greasy residues before spraying. We recommend that you do your spray-painting outside. In our Spray 1x1 article, we offer important tips on how to achieve perfect results.
If your lampshade is plastic, spray the plastic primer on the inside and outside and leave it to dry for approx. 15 minutes. You can then continue spraying with the copper paint. Turn the lampshade over and spray the inside with the copper shade. We recommend that you spray paint from a distance of approx. 25 cm using horizontal and vertical strokes to ensure more even coverage. Leave the paint to dry for approx. 30 minutes.
Turn the lamp over and spray all over the outside using the shade elegant night blue. Leave the paint to dry thoroughly for approx. 30 minutes.
